Modification Monday: Simple Navy Top
Original Pattern: Girly Top
Knitter Extraordinaire: rililie (Ravelry ID, blog)
Mods: Changed the gauge, altered the waist shaping, changed the neck edging, added long sleeves with lace details. Project page can be found here.
What Makes This Awesome: The sleeves, the sleeves! I don't think it ever occured to me before seeing this that a simple sweater should be modified to have great sleeve detail like this. Keeping the lace situated on the lower part of the sleeve is definitely more chic than full lace sleeves, and the neckline is perfect- every detail of this sweater is perfectly balanced. I'd love to have this sweater in my wardrobe!.
